Books for Bango! is our club's Signature community project. The club donates the funds to purchase books for every elementary student in the Coon Rapids Area. Lions then run the game of Bango, and every student manages to win a book. Events take place once per school year at each of the elementary schools.  
  Holiday Gifts for Seniors in the Coon Rapids Area!  Lion members donate small gifts during the holiday season which are combined, wrapped and delivered to citizens of Coon Rapids whose names have been submitted to the Lions through the Senior Center.
Collecting Socks for Soldiers! Lion Brian's daughter is a medic with the National Guard in Afghanistan. Her unit flies wounded soldiers to the hospital on the other side of the mountains. Most of the soldiers they transport are both shoe- and sock-less, so they are apt to suffer from shock due to the high altitude. The Lions are collecting socks and knit hats to keep the wounded soldiers warm while being transported via helicopter to the hospital.  

Feeding the hungry in Coon Rapids through Loaves and Fishes at the Salvation Army! Loaves and Fishes feeds the hungry on Mondays and Wednesdays every week. Civic and faith-based organizations are encouraged to participate in this worthy cause.

Through the Coon Rapids  Lions Foundation, the Lions recently donated the funds to purchase an electronic  message board to the city to be installed at Lions Coon Creek Park!
